    Gardens by the Bay is one of my favourite places to visit in Singapore and probably in the whole world. I always looks forward to going when in Singapore!
    It’s not too expensive, there is lots to see and do and you feel so relaxed walking around enjoying the vibe.
    The Cloud Forest Dome is my favourite but I love the other attractions too, especially the free Sky Trees show every evening.
    Claim a spot in the park early as it gets really busy in the hour before the shows start!

    Orchards grow so well in climates like Singapore's so it's no surprise that the National Orchid Garden has such a great variety of these beautiful, sometimes curious plants. This garden sits within the Singapore Botanic Garden (free entry) and is surprisingly large with indoor and outdoor gardens including the Cool House (take a breather from the heat here) and the VIP orchard section with unique specimens named after the famous and infamous.
    The entry fee is $15 (only $1 if you're local), but with over 1000 species and 2000 hybrids on display, and more being nurtured, (they run a breeding program here too), I think it's well worth the price.

    We bought the combined ticket to cover this and the flower dome and enjoyed both conservatories equally. It’s surprisingly cool inside which is lovely in a hot day. We enjoyed the waterfall and the high level walkways from which you can see the beautiful planting. It takes about an hour to walk your way through if you stop and take a few photos and look at all the plants.

    Singapore Zoo is a must visit every time we are in Singapore. Although over the years there have been many changes to the park, and there is currently heavy building works, it still is a brilliant day out for us all.
    The zoo is very well laid out with a large range of sections dedicated to animals from different habitats and there are map boards and finger posts to direct you to the different zones so no difficulty in navigating your way around.
    The zoo also provides a regular tram service around the park which is great when little ones have tired legs or you need to get to a zone quickly.
    There is a programme of talks by very passionate workers which adds a little schedule to your trip too. However, if you just want to set your own pace there are very informative information boards about the animals you are viewing too.
    There are additional opportunities to feed a range of animals (set times) for an additional $8 (at time of writing) per basket which can be great for memory making and photographs too. However, these need to be pre-booked online.

    A visit to Singapore Zoo is a whole day out and although the ticket enables you to visit other sections of the park, if this is your first or second visit it is unlikely you will have time to visit these.

    Tips:
    Arrive early.
    Don't forget your camera.
    Bring a refillable water bottle (ensure it is not frosted or metal otherwise the machine struggles to recognise the bottle and fill it.
    Wear comfortable shoes - there is a lot of walking!
    If coming in a standard taxi, pre-book the return to avoid the very long taxi queue or very expensive luxury private cabs.

    Get yourself along to this free gem of fireworks followed by a laser light show on water. It’s a quick 15 mins but worth seeing.
    Kids will love it, geriatrics will love it. Make sure you bring a drink with your.

    We bought a combined ticket with the cloud forest and that was a good option. I’d recommend doing the flower dome first as it takes less time to walk around and the cloud forest is even better.

    There’s gardens representing various countries plus a main floral exhibition. When we attended it was for cherry blossom trees (Japan) which was especially beautiful.

    It’s cooler in here than outside which is a welcome relief in Singapore (where it was 33 degrees during our visit).

    Allow 45 mins to an hour depending on how much you read about the plants!

    We were short on time so we did the boardwalk loop (Prunus Trail and Petai Trail Loop) within the main loop. And I wasn't wearing the right shoes (something enclosed and made for walking/hiking is recommended) so this was a good option.

    The boardwalk loop is mostly shaded and flat (with some stairs), and it loops along the water. We saw heaps of monkeys, which thrilled me but barely rated a glance from the locals. We saw a lot of birds too as well as lizards, a turtle and butterflies. I'm sure there'd be even more to see early in the morning or at the end of the day.

    Judging by the number of walkers and runners and the equipment at the start of the trail, this is a popular spot for locals to exercise. There are toilets, bubblers and vending machines at the visitor centre and if you check the map there you'll see where you can find other similar facilities along the trail.

    The MRT station is about 15 minutes walk away and plenty of buses regularly pass by the reservoir from both directions.

    I wish I'd had time to do the whole loop including the Treetop Trail but it was a stinking hot day and our last in Singapore so, next time.

    We have an issue with our tickets but the staff were very helpful, professional and sorted out the problem. It was a nice experience, it dose get dark and harder to spot the animals. The tram is worth taking, giving a gentle ride and a good view of some of the animals. Travel was easy from the MRT. We got the shuttle bus from khatib, just a few steps outside, costing $3 there and back .

    Beautiful site to enjoy simply as a park but also a lot of significant historical interest for visitors from ancient Singapura to WW2. We wandered through much of the different sections of park and visited also the Battle Box, learning about Fort Canning's role in WW2.

    For the hiking and walking spirited people, a very nice place to visit while in Singapore. The car can be parked across on the one side from where the walk/hike can be started. The cemented stretch is there and, hence, it can be treaded even in the rains. There is a wooden patch of the overbridge which is a well known spot and has appeared in one or two Indian films. The long walk is extremely refreshing for the nature enthusiasts.

    Google does not show the location of this because it is connected through a flyover. Google takes us to the flyover and shows the location there whereas we are to move ahead and take a turn for the garden which is located overhead. A nice place to visit.

    Visited on a Friday evening, and the park was absolutely brimming with families. We alighted at the carpark beside the iconic East Coast Park MacDonald's - and followed the crowd's general direction towards the Marine Cove playground - one of the largest and packed free playgrounds with lots of climbing, swing and slide elements. Love that the kids here are polite and wait their turns to play the swings, etc.

    Walked around two kilometers and what a sight to behold - plenty of families setting up what seem to be high-grade mountaineering-worthy tents along the shore, some intentionally made to stand out with all sorts of fairy lights, readying their barbeque pits and playing their jams - totally family-friendly party atmos here at East Coast Park.

    The long walk was made bearable by the constant sea breeze, and definitely more exciting with the giant blood moon hanging low above the sea line. Would have loved to rent a family quad-cycle (which looked really cute with the little ones in front), if not for the need to cycle all the way back to the rental shop to return it.

    Both Long Beach UDMC and Jumbo Seafood restaurants looked enticing for dinner but they were extremely packed, so there was no choice but to trudge on past the giant lake that is the SWP (Singapore Wake Park), before finally arriving at the East Coast Lagoon Food Village - absolutely crowded too since we had to wait around for tables, but worth it when we managed to grab hold of the famous (and affordable) barbequed chicken wings, shrimps and sambal sting ray.

    Sweaty fun... is fun.

    The Singapore River is the flowing lifeblood of this vibrant city. Having a wall writer family member, I took a particular interest in the beautiful murals on the walls of the river underpasses.

    When traveling we always try to find the weird and unusual and Haw Par Villa fits the bill. Originally built as gardens and a pseudo theme park by the brothers who invented Tiger Balm ointment it's now a free walk through attraction. The connected Hell's Museum has an entrance fee but the rest of the park is completely free to walk around. Most of the sculptures have plaques in all four of Singapore's official languages so everyone can understand what you're looking at (and sometimes not). It's worth a couple of hours of walking around here just looking at all the oddball stuff but be sure to bring a hat, sunscreen and some water.

    Sure it’s called River Wonders but the best part was pandas. The panda area is well air conditioned and worth it just for a break from the heat. On a Sunday in late February, there was a sparse crowd and we were able to linger and enjoy the pandas being fat, lazy, and cute. The rest of the park was fine. The boat cruise was nice but animals sleep most of the day so you don’t see much. You won’t miss much by skipping it. If you are going to the zoo anyway, it’s a nice add on. They were side to put the pandas here so you buy another ticket.
